I use an external 4k monitor set as my main display with scale set at 100%, the 4K display on my laptop is set at 200% scale.  Windows-shift-s screen snip does not allow me to capture on the external monitor.  I have to set the scale on both displays to the same setting for snipping to work.  Also some applications on the external monitor (100%) display using the scaling from the laptop monitor (200%).  Finally, the taskbar on the laptop monitor (200%) displays using the external scaling (100%) and is too small to be usable.

same here. This is what it looks like. Note that the left screen is a 15" laptop screen on 200% scaling, and the right screen is a 28" monitor on 100% scaling (both 4k) https://imgur.com/JcpydGQ
